Deoproce Natural Perfect Solution Cleansing Foam: Deep Cleansing

Our skin needs deep cleansing once in a while if not often to remove impurities that are clogging our pores deep down inside. Using the right product for the skin is crucial to ensure the best results you can attain.

I have heard about how in the olden days, people would use rice bran as a form of scrub and rice water as the cleansing water for brighter and healthier skin. Today, this brand that I will be introducing uses the same theory to create a deep cleansing foam for your daily needs.

HiShop was kind to send me a tube of Korean skincare brand -  DEOPROCE Natural Solution Cleansing Foam for me to try it out.

July 'LOVE' Fashion Culture Box

Beauty boxes are the trend right now ever since I heard about the beauty bag idea by Michele Phan - Ipsy Bag. Now in Malaysia, we are not left behind as there are numerous beauty boxes or bags available for you to subscribe to. One thing that I have ever yet to know about is fashion boxes, at least not until I found out about Fashion Culture Box. They are the very first to offer fashion box in Malaysia!

The mechanism used by Fashion Culture Box is the very same mechanism used with beauty box subscriptions except you are getting fashionable items rather than products. Another difference I would call it, the items in the fashion box is the full item on its own as compared to beauty boxes where you get deluxe samples, sachets, and/or travel sized products with the occasional full sized items.

Every month is a different theme and the boxes will be filled with items matching the them; delivered to your doorsteps. Subscription is opened beginning of the month and you will receive them by end of the month or so.
 It comes in a simple white box with black printings- a simplistic yet elegant way of packaging.

Falling In Love Everyday

When I see an elderly couple who are holding hands with smiles on their faces while walking slowly in a mall or any place at all, I find myself in awe. I have seen and heard of a few marriages or relationship that did not last for all the reasons possible. Hearing such news made me think that sometimes relationship with another soul could so fickle. When you hear about a person cheating on the partner or just feel out of love, what would you feel?

One day, I came across an article or a quote, I cannot really recall which but I could relate to that one line - "To stay in love with that person, you have to fall in love with that person everyday"  , a simple yet meaningful line.

MAYBELLINE White Superfresh Long Lasting UV Cake Powder

Every girl would dream of having on makeup but minus the need to touch up constantly. To allow every girl to achieve that dream, Maybelline came up with a new product - White Superfresh Long Lasting UV Cake Powder that promises 12 hours of bright matte look along with the fresh feel to the skin which also contains SPF34++++, suitable for our sunny Malaysian condition.

Personally, I have never used pressed powder, compact powder, cake powder, or any compressed powder for the matter of fact. When I started using cosmetics, I jumped straight to foundations and BB Creams. This is my first encounter with product like White Superfresh Long Lasting UV Cake Powder in 02 Nude Beige.

Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner (Stardust) Review

Every girl can never have one too many eyeliners, can we?

I am back with another review of MISS HANA Water Proof Gel Eyeliner but this time it is the Stardust range. Natta Cosme was kind enough to send me some to try them out myself. If you have yet to read my review of the plain or matte (as what I would call it) range of the eyeliner, you can read them HERE

When I read the word Stardust, my imagination began bursting with the images of the night sky or even the galaxy.

My Weekend Beauty Haul

Hola Bonitas!

I am pretty sure everyone would have heard about The Body Shop sales and raided outlets by now. When I went out with the girls last weekend, I decided to head on to the outlet in East Coast Mall. 

The night before, I actually sat down and scrolled the website to see the list of items on sale. You must be thinking, "Why in the world would you do that when it is sales period?". I just wanted to go with a list of items I really want to get my hands on because I dislike going to sales not knowing what I want and having the salesperson following me around the store like I am gonna steal some stuffs.

I went in looking around and decided to ask the salesperson for the items in my list:
  1. White Bath Gloves
  2. Peppermint Pumice Foot Scrub
  3. Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette

HOLA BEAUTY LOVERS!

I am back with a beauty product review. Well, technically I will be breaking the review up into three parts because one is just too long for you to read. Who would want to read a super long post, right? 

HiShop was kind enough to send me a box full of CLIO products for me to try out. I have been living under the rocks lately and only knew about CLIO like a month ago when I was out with my girlfriends and we wondered into SaSa outlet and I was looking around for the best eyeliner.

Dining at La Casa Kuantan

Hello Lovelies!

How have your weekend been? 

I hope you had fun! I definitely had a blast with my girls. 

The semester ended so we decided to rent a car, head out for some relaxation, and some delicious food. The semester was hectic and stressful for all of us - we had to prepare for our final year projects, tests, quizzes, and whatnot. Everyone was running around like zombies. Plus, we needed some awesome tasting food for our poor taste buds having to live on the same ol' cafeteria food.

We wanted to get some yummy Western food or to be more precise, some chicken and lamb chops. We  first headed to Chill & Grill, located next to A LemonGrass Thai at Jalan Berserah, thinking that we will get to try out some delicious chops. When we reached, the menu was A LemonGrass Thai menu and all in it were Thai food. Bummer~ 

Since we all adamant about getting some chops for dinner, we started grilling our brains to think of a place to head to. We thought of this place known as La Casa, located at Jalan Teluk Cempedak.  It is located on the way to one of the famous tourist attractions in Kuantan known as Teluk Cempedak.

Long Distance Relationship: A Torment or A Blessing?

Long Distance Relationship~~

A torment or a blessing?

Those who have known me long enough would know that I have been in a long distance relationship (LDR) for quite some years now. Those who are just getting to know me or have just read my blog, now you know. I have been asked similar questions regarding my relationship once too often. Honestly, no matter how many times I have heard and answer the same question, I never fail to blush while at it.

For one, I am blessed to be in a relationship with someone as awesome as my Boyfriend Dearest. The things we have done and been through together were the ones that painted the beautiful pictures on our lil' canvas.

One Eventful Week - Passion Restaurant & Bar

Hola!! 
How have your week been?

I know I have not been posting any blog entry off late as I have been occupied with tests and assignments. I managed to be back home for a week break before continuing my second half of my semester. The break was the best I have had in such a long time. One eventful week... Best of all, the Boyfie and our dear friends planned all of it!

I touched down in my hometown on Friday evening. Thanks to the dearest Boyfie, I did not have to travel by bus but instead comfortably in his car, with him. We had a wonderful get together with our friends at Passion Restaurant & Bar for some beer and good chats to start of my break.

Hot-Cold Properties of Food

In Chinese medicine, food are divided into those that are:
  • Hot or also known as Heaty
  • Cold or also known as Cooling
  • Neutral
Did you know that the body can be divided into hot or cold types too?

Coming from a Chinese background, I have been introduced to properties of food according to their properties. Even the herbs used have different properties. I have had my fair share of herbal medicines when I was a child. 


Here is an infographic which can provide you with better understanding of 
Hot-Cold Properties of food:

Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner Review

Buenos, bonitas!

When I started using make up products 5 years ago, I started with eyeliners. The thing about me is that instead of trying out with pencil eyeliners first, I jumped straight to using liquid eyeliners. Down the road, I started using gel liners. I have used a few brands of liquid eyeliners and gel liners as well as read up many reviews.

What I look for in my eyeliners, be it liquid or gel or pencil are smudge proof , waterproof, long lasting, smooth application, and affordable. I have heard a lot about Miss Hana eyeliners especially the pencil gel liners. Therefore, I am proud to present to you my review of Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner!



This product promised to be waterproof, smudge proof, pigmented, smooth application, and long lasting - all of which are the qualities of the eyeliners one would want to look for.

Style Advisor : Glasses Online

Hola, bonitas!

How were your weekends? 
I hope everyone had a great one!


But I cannot say the same for myself. Assignments piling in.. Presentations every week.. Journals to read for my thesis.. The list goes on and on.. The life of a typical university student.. But then again, it is not always such a sad affair.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Just to take the load of my head, I would like to share with you my style coordination that I did for Glasses Online. Glasses Online had asked me to be one of their Style Advisor.

When it comes to style and fashion, mine has always been simplistic and effortless. I came a long way from wearing boy-ish clothing to the feminine side of mine. It took me a while to get in touch with my femininity which is a long a story.

Once Upon A Valentine's

It's almost a week since we celebrated double Valentine's. 
Double Valentine's doesn't happen every year so this year it's super special!
How did you celebrated Valentine's Day?

I had one of the best Valentine's this year. 
All thanks to the beloved Boyfriend!
Yet again, he made me cried tears of joy.
The waiter did a really bad job at taking the photo for us. =(

The night before Valentine's, the BF told me we will be trying out an awesome tasting Nasi Lemak for Valentine's. Then, that noon, he called and said we'll have Nasi Kandar instead. I did not actually believe at first but later on I actually believed him. I do not mind seeing that he has just started working and it is on a Friday, we would not have the luxury of time and money to be going anywhere fancy.

When we were in the car, he was rather convincing about heading to a Nasi Kandar place just near our house. I happily chatted while he was driving. As he pulled the car into a parking lot, then I realized he had a plan! Cheeky guy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WHERE WE HAD OUR VALENTINE'S DINNER?

He made a reservation for two at JUICY Bar & Grill! 
I was not expecting this.

Menu of the night:
We had a choice between the main courses offered.
We decided to go for Main Course A and C.

Beautymate Purifying & Hydrating Set Review


Chinese New Year is almost ending!
How have your celebrations been?

The weather is blistering hot today!


I'm sure everyone is having fun eating those delicious food while enjoying the company of friends and family. 
Like me, I'm also sure there are so many of us who stayed up late or busy gallivanting around.

Have you noticed that your skin is a little drier than usual after all the fun?
Do you feel like your skin is showing signs of fatigue?

If you answer is YES, then this might be something you'd need for your skin!

Day One and Two of the celebration just ended. 

I'm here to share something that all make up users will be very interested in!

Imagine this:
You put on your awesome make up and had a fun day out looking awesome. When you get home, you're beat and all you ever want to do is just quickly get a bath and rest. But before bathing, you definitely need to remove your makeup first to ensure you don't clog your pores and gt breakouts later on.

Here's the one thing that can help you get cleaned in the shower:

My Birthday Surprise!

Happy Birthday to me.. Happy Birthday to me..
Celebrated my birthday two Sundays ago!
Feeling very grown up.. Hehe!

Loving family, loving boyfriend, wonderful friends.. What more could I ever wish for?

I thought this birthday would be just like any other. I have never done anything fancy for my birthday. But, the boyfriend decided to make it different for me. Even my roommate decided to make my birthday different than before.

What happened?
Just before the clock strike 12 midnight (sounds like a Cinderella story?) to mark the start of Sunday, the boyfriend decided to have a round of online gaming with the friends. I didn't protest because he has been working hard the whole week and he deserves to unwind in his own way. Then, when the clock stroked 12 o'clock, the sister wished me first. The boyfriend seemed oblivious about the time which wasn't very fun for the birthday girl but I wasn't mad at him. 

When he was done, it was almost 12.30am and he decided to have a bath. I was a little sad because I thought he would remember that it's already my birthday. He came back to the room with a big present! I was so surprised! He came donning his ever so charming smile and gave me my birthday present. Immediately I teared - tears of joy, literally! He said that the gaming session was part of his plan to surprise me. Cheeky boy!

What was my present?
The present was really heavy and I kept on asking him what's in it. He refused to tell and just grinned all the time.
